Ironmongery Direct show their mettle

Six Ironmongery Direct employees raised more than £9,000 to help fight heart disease, by completing the Flora London Marathon on Sunday.
And now they have vowed to continue fundraising until they have collected at least £10,000 for their chosen charity H.E.A.R.T UK.

Leading the Ironmongery Direct pack was Chris Clayton who finished the course in four hours and 15 minutes, followed over the next two hours by his five other team mates.

One of them, Chris Bass, who completed the 26 miles in five hours and 51 minutes, said, “I am very proud of the Ironmongery Direct team for their commitment to the cause. They put in so many hours of training and it really paid off on the day. Completing the London Marathon and raising so much money in the process is no mean feat.”

The runners who completed the Flora London Marathon were, in order: Chris Clayton, Paul White and Alex Smith, Marc Steel, Glen Cattermole and Chris Bass.
